What is the Waterburg Plateau?
This plateau is disappointingly ordinary compared to the bizarre magnificence of other prime sights in Namibia. The restcamp is comfortable and spacious, but the road there is dull, wildlife is minimal – a few little dik-dik deer, warthogs and some funky birds – and the walks less than exciting. There are a couple of pretty scrambling routes, particularly from the restcamp up onto the plateau where the views are magnificent, but this does not deserve a serious detour from, for example, Etosha. Better to spend an extra day or two elsewhere.
